"La Ancient Belle" is a Bell Library for Kontakt 5. The Bell is an instrument of the Metallophone-Family just like the bigger sister of the Glockenspiel. The Bell is well known as an instrument used by marching bands to accompany the high flutes or the Lyra. While the Lyra is carried on a stick, sounding like a Glockenspiel, the Bell is played like a Vibraphone hanging in front of the player.
The solid aluminum bars have a beautiful and warm sound in the middle section and a crystal clear voice in the higher octave reminding of a wonderful music box sound. The native range is two and a half octaves from g" to c"", tuned in A=442. The Library provides two additional pitched octaves to thicken the sound if necessary.
The patch consists of 30 native ranged keys recorded in high quality 41kHz / 24-bit wave format. Every key has three velocity layers, each containing three Roundrobins. So the patch consists of 270 recorded samples plus two additional octaves pitched sounds of the same quality.
